Cinéma sous les étoiles is an outdoor social and political documentary film festival, entirely free of charge and open to all. This major event takes place every year in many parks and outdoor venues throughout Montreal and surrounding areas. The public can thus discover free of charge quality works on local and international current events in the heart of their neighbourhood.

HI Canada has decided to join this initiative to present documentaries on issues related to its mission to Quebec and Montreal audiences. For this 2019 edition, HI will co-present:
